Bhagavad Gita Chapter 10 Verse 9

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 10 श्लोक 9

मच्चित्ता मद्गतप्राणा बोधयन्तः परस्परम्।
कथयन्तश्च मां नित्यं तुष्यन्ति च रमन्ति च।।10.9।।

English Translation - Swami Gambirananda

10.9 With minds fixed on Me, with lives dedicated to Me, enlightening each other, and always speaking of Me, they derive satisfaction and rejoice.

English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

10.9 They live with their minds focussed on Me, namely, with their minds fixed on Me; with their Pranas, i.e., life, centred on Me - the meaning is that they are unable to sustain themselves without Me. They inspire one another by speaking about My attributes which have been experienced by them and narrating My divine and adorable deeds. They live in contentment and bliss at all times. The speakers are delighted by their own speech, because it is spontaneous, without any ulterior motive; the listeners too feel the speech to be unsurpassingly and incomparably dear to them. They thus live in bliss.
